Remains found in Rocky Mountain National Park on Friday were positively identified to belong to Air Force Academy Cadet Candidate Micah Tice.

  • Tice, 20, was reported missing on November 26, two days after he was last seen on a trail by other hikers on November 24. The search was suspended in December because of extreme weather conditions.
  • According to an Academy press release, Tice's remains were found “in an area previously targeted by rescuers following up on cell phone information during the initial search.”
  • “On behalf of the entire Academy, I would like to express our deepest condolences to the Tice family,” Academy superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria said in the press release. “At this difficult time, we hope they can take some comfort from the thoughts and prayers of the entire USAFA family and Colorado Springs community. Micah was a tremendous young man with a bright future and we all feel his loss.”
